As a retailer, one of your important assets is ‘space’. On the other hand, in numerous situations the quantity of space you have is a limited resource. It needs to be well managed.

A retail concept should be far more than mere whimsical aesthetic considerations. It also needs to be innovative and cost effective, flexible and oriented towards the target market. More importantly it also needs to differentiate itself from the competition so that customers would prefer shopping there rather than elsewhere. The concept should not just be a look but a complete experience. To this end, signage and graphic communications and visual merchandising are key elements for consideration. Goods and services need to be presented in a way as to increase the average consumer transaction.
Perhaps the only most damaging blunder in industry at the moment is the frequent practice of overlooking asset management concepts during the design, formulating and start-up of foremost innovative facilities. The global cost of this poor management practice with relevance to assets pertains to retail is beyond doubt. New facilities familiarity unnecessary unplanned downtime, resulting in extreme costs and loss of critical production due to quality and quantity issues is also one of the agenda.
A Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is a set of written instructions that document a routine or repetitive activity followed by an organisation. The development and use of SOPs are an integral part of a successful quality system as it provides staff with the information to perform a job properly, and facilitates consistently in the quality and integrity of the end-result. SOPs take into consideration the regularly recurring work processes that are to be conducted or followed within an organisation. It not merely elaborate but also document the way activities are to be performed to facilitate consistent conformance to technical and quality system requirements and to support operation.
Visual merchandising refers to the use and manipulation of attractive sales displays and retail floor plans to engage customers and boost sales activity. In visual merchandising, the products being sold are typically displayed in such a way as to attract consumers from the intended market by drawing attention to the product’s best features and benefits.
We will be illustrating numerous visual merchandising guidelines based on 12 different topics, with practical examples and implementation possibilities. Observing these guidelines will lead to an increase in sales and reduce personnel costs on a long-term basis, in addition to many other positive effects.
Suppose you go to the market to buy soap. The shopkeeper suggests that if you buy two soap cakes, an extra soap cake will be given to you free of cost under “buy 2 get 3” scheme. You feel attracted to buy as by doing so you are saving money on one soap. Moreover, soap is an item which is required on a regular basis, and so you can keep the extra two cakes to be used later. This is an approach of increasing sale of a product and it is quite different from what you have learnt in the earlier two lessons. Let us learn more about it in this lesson.

Delivering a service to customers involves answering the questions "where?"

The nature of the delivery system has a powerful impact on the customer's experience with the service product.
Price is generally seen as the amount of money that is charged for a product or service. It can serve as an incentive to buy a product or discourage a customer from purchasing it.

We tend to have a picture in our minds of what being a salesperson involves — not all of it positive. Plus, some of us may think we would not make good sales people because we can’t see ourselves cold-calling, prospecting, or being good at closing the sale. But in this chapter, we’ll be looking at sales from a different point of view. How would you feel about becoming someone who helps people solve problems by offering them solutions that meet their needs? At its essence, this is what sales truly means.
Going through a buying process and that too so involved like an extended problem solving (EPS) situation, is never easy for a consumer. The purchase and post-purchase are the last two stages of such consumer decision-making. While the purchase stage is more crucial from the manufacturers' or marketers' perspective, the post-purchase behaviour indicates the ultimate satisfaction perceived by consumers, and has implications for marketers as a determinant of future purchase decisions.
